The much anticipated sequel to the 2015 parkour-filled survival horror Dying Light has been delayed once again, developer Techland have announced via the game’s Twitter account.
This latest delay to February 4th 2022 is Dying Light 2‘s second major delay, with the new date being around two years after its initially scheduled release of “early 2020”. This marks the latest in a vast quantity of titles having to be pushed back, in part due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic; which caused massive structural changes for development studios as their teams worked remotely. In the announcement, signed by Techland CEO, Pawel Marchewka, it is said that Dying Light 2 Stay Human is “nearing the finish line” and is “complete” but in its “playtesting” stage. Techland cite how ambitious the project is as the reason for the further delay.
That’s not to say we won’t be seeing anything at all from Dying Light 2, however. The announcement also confirms that both press and content creators alike will begin to get access to both PC and console versions of the game, allowing us a closer look at the game while we wait for February to come around.
